Avenues Street Fair
Every September the community comes together for two days to create the Avenues Street Fair. Located just above downtown Salt Lake City in the historic Avenues district, over two hundred booths fill the streets with local artists, food, crafts, organizations and entertainment. A kids parade starts the fair, and the best costume award is handed out. The Avenues Street Fair has been held since 1970, and began as a remodeling tool exchange. Twelve local musical groups perform on two different stages, and enter a contest every year to be chosen as the entertainment. Each year a local artist is selected to create a unique theme for that year's fair.
